2011 Part Two: Review of a SPECTACULARLY QUIRKY Year!

____________________________

Time to say goodbye, 2011!! It's been such an amazing ride, and I'm kind of sad to see the year end. Sadly, I haven't even purchased a 2012 calendar or switched my filofax over to 2012. I've always been a little bit reluctant to start a brand new year. It's difficult to welcome a new year when there are so many memories from the previous year still floating around in my mind. I like to reflect on all of the wonderful moments from the previous year before I fully accept the new year. Here is part two of 2011 in review:

July

July was NUTSO!! I helped my best friend prepare for her wedding, we went to a fancy bridesmaids luncheon, My best friend got married, I went to Trina's bachelorette party in Austin, we went to see Hairspray at the ZACH theatre in Austin, my mom's rat terrier was rushed to the emergency vet clinic for extreme vomiting, I cooked an amazing chicken enchilada casserole, Zeth & I went to Oklahoma to visit some of his family, and I welcomed SHARK WEEK with much enthusiasm.

August

I celebrated my 25th birthday on the first of August, went shopping in San Antonio with my sister, bought my very first COACH handbag, went to see the GLEE 3D MOVIE at midnight with my closest friends, travelled home with Zeth to celebrate his nephew's first birthday, and devoured our first sno-cones of the summer. I also discovered that I'm hopelessly addicted to Starbuck's passion tea lemonades.

September

September was one of my favorite months of the year. I spent a lot of time with my sister & Zeth, went to a wedding in Oklahoma with Zeth, perfected my pesto tomato salad, bought myself several bouquets of tea roses, went on many frozen yogurt dates with my sister, visited my best friend and her husband, and saw Spring Awakening at the ZACH theatre in Austin with my lovely friends.

October
I spent most of my time in rehearsal for The Foreigner during October. Being the stage manager for our school's production of the show was beyond amazing. I celebrated Halloween with my beautiful friends by bar hopping, drinking bubbly drinks, and sleeping over in our friend's unfinished loft. I started seeing a brand new doctor & spent an entire day in bed after having 12 viles of blood drawn. I also attended a sleep study to be tested for sleeping disorders. It was a very quirky experience. The most exciting thing that happened during October was getting my learning driver's license!

November
I feel like November went by in a flash. It was a very busy month full of appointments, rehearsals, and concerts. I also stressed baked a lot during exams & papers. On top of a million school assignments, I ran our first week of tech rehearsals & performances for The Foreigner, sang in my choir's holiday concert, sang in Trina & Martin's wedding, and went to Austin for Thanksgiving with my family. The saddest part of November was my sister moving away to Maryland.

December

I spent most of December being very sick. After trudging through finals, I came down with walking pneumonia, a sinus infection, an ear infection, and a kidney infection. Instead of going home with Zeth for the holidays, I was stuck in bed with lots of tissues & some super powered antibiotics. My mom, Zeth, and my dog all took really good care of me. I watched a lot of movies & television series on netflix. Zeth taught me how to make homemade hot cocoa and cooked many delicious meals for me. I took my mom shopping at my favorite antique store and she fell in love. And I baked lots of goodies for the holiday. I also found out about the seriousness of my illness. December was a rough month, but full of many lovely moments. It was also a reminder that I do have a very blessed life.
